If you want to get the Bixby working on your phone as well, all you need to do is install the Galaxy S8 launcher and then the Bixby APK file.

Samsung has officially unveiled the latest addition to Galaxy premium range, the Galaxy S8 at its Unpacked 2017 event in NY.

Both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will come powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 SoC.

The first security measure on the Galaxy S8 - apart from the standard pattern, password, and PIN code - is not a new one, which is IRIS detection. It also contradicts what previous rumors have suggested, which claimed that they would be getting rid of the fingerprint sensor button entirely and instead go with an in-display fingerprint scanner. If you check out the clip, you can see that the owner's picture being placed in front of the flagship will be sufficient to unlock the phone. On the other hand, 10 years of iPhone is indeed nostalgic so Apple is expected to have the best technology to beat the S8 and to celebrate 10 glorious years. The fingerprint sensor is on the back of the phones and there is Iris scanning available to unlock the phones through the eyes scanning. In addition, the Google Assistant has been replaced by Samsung's new personal assistant; Bixby. Moreover, S8 Mini will have 5.3 inch display and 4 GB of RAM.

According to an unnamed industry source was speaking to The Korea Herald, the S8's facial tracking tech is not secure enough to be used to protect your phone.

As of now, the only units you can find out there are meant for reviews and so far, there are a bunch of interesting stuff we are gradually finding out about the phones. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will run on the company's UI based on Android 7.0 Nougat. Samsung hopes to turn its fortunes around with its latest releases.
